I flipped my first site - I'm so excited over $30 profit

10 replies
I am so thankful for all of the great info available on WF. I was able to purchase a WP template and tweak it a little and put it for sale on Flippa.

After all the fees and initial purchase, I made out with $30 in profit. ($87 sale price)

Now that my feet are wet, I want to build more sites, this time from scratch.

Some of the things that I did was automate the blog with feedwordpress, and created a twitter account, automated by twitterfeed.com. I also created 9 backlinks (from Angela's packet).

All of this took me 1 hour. Now it's time to scale it up!

      As far as I know it is $19 to list at Flippa and if your sales is successful you also pay a success fee of 5% of the winning bid.

      The process is quite simple. Just register with the site and follow the instructions for listing a website. It's quite user friendly but I think you do need to be able to verify your account by phone.

    This is great to listen! Congrats! and wish you more success.

    Note: I just wanted to post a little warning, that now do not make this complicated...
    i mean this took you 1 hour! right? Do not, in next sites try to make them perfect
    and spend 1 month before listing them for sale....May this help....I from my own experience
    know that, i will make money from simple processes and simple things, and then in the dream of making
    big, i will add more and more things to the process and Wow, it is now complicated,
    big, and energy robbing, and after spending much time i may get bored or so and completely throw away it without no ROI...

    As they say simple things work, and also your experience proved it.
    Now please duplicate it but beware of complicating it!

      Very good advice, thank you for that. I am flipping my first website and I have realized I am beginning to take too much time on making the design perfect. It will probably only sell for $200 to $500, I think it's time to wrap it up!

    Yes, it had a few PLR articles as posts, and it auto updates.

    I had also created a powerpoint and did a screen capture recording, and put it on youtube to get indexed faster.

    I created a gmail account for all these sites, too.
